We have reached the “there is-an-app-for-that” peak. Or maybe the maximum laziness.
On Tuesday, an on-demand liquor delivery service was launched in Portland.
GoBooze, a delivery service subsidiary GoPuff, offers home delivery of over 100 types of beer and wine for a flat fee of $ 1.95.
To use the service, download the GoPuff app and enter your postal code. If you are in the company’s service area, you can add items (including housewares, groceries, and hookah supplies) to your cart.
Some possible commands:
- A bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, Babybel cheese and a Hersey’s Almond Bar
- A case of Lagunitas, a frozen pizza and a Chex mix
- Haagen Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter, Strawberry Rolling Papers and Packet of Jalapeno Cheetos
- A case of PBR, Top Ramen and a dozen eggs
Currently, alcohol-free deliveries are available in Portland from noon to 4:20 a.m. (Snoop Dogg is A big fan), and alcohol deliveries are available from noon to 9:30 p.m. The company may extend the delivery times in the future.
The Philadelphia-based company operates local warehouses in each of its cities and promises to deliver orders in 30 minutes.
The addition of GoPuff’s liquor delivery service comes as other companies vie for market share on demand.
Amazon launched its Prime Now service in Portland in August, promising one-hour delivery for beer, wine, ice cream and other convenience store items. However, alcoholic drinks do not appear to be available through the service.
According to GeekWire, other delivery services operating in Portland include Instacart, Postmates, GrubHub, Caviar, Eat24, Delivered Dish, and Delivery Dudes.
This story has been clarified to clarify the company’s separate delivery times for alcoholic and non-alcoholic items. No, you cannot order Four Lokos at 3 a.m. on a Tuesday (or any other day).
